Freezer Meal Recipes: Beef Green Chile Taco Casserole
Warm memories of Mom, yep, that’s what Beef Green Chile Taco Casserole imparts. It was on her monthly rotation and I always loved it. If you want to vary it, you can swap chicken or pork for beef. Be sure to double or triple the recipe and freeze a few for new moms, and busy days. It’s just as easy to layer up three as it is to make one!
Brown ground beef and onion together. Drain fat. Combine chiles, soup, milk, olives, garlic, sour cream, salt and pepper to make the sauce. Beginning with sauce, layer tortillas, meat, and cheese in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Top with cheese and bake at 350˚ degrees for 1 hour.
Preparing For the Freezer:
First, cover with parchment paper or plastic wrap and then foil. Second, label with Beef Green Chile Taco Casserole. Third, print baking directions: Bake at 350˚ degree for 1 hour. Fourth: Label with the date you prepared it.
Prepare after Freezing:
Remove casserole from the freezer the night before you plan to serve it. Let sit in refrigerator till 2 hours before serving. Preheat oven to 350˚ degrees. Bake casserole for 1 hour and serve with a crisp green salad. Enjoy!
